This is it! Driving from Land's End to John O'Groats (the famous "LEJOG") in an electric Kia e-Niro.

In part 1 I drove from my home in Canterbury to Land's End but this is the big one. 877 miles / 1,411 km in one day.

With such a long drive I wanted some help. Meet my sister-in-law Ceci who's never driven an EV before. Will she find it easy? Will she enjoy driving?

Find out how good the UK's charging infrastructure is and see if it's actually possible to do it all in one day with a smile on your face.

As with part 1, the music is chosen from counties we drove through. Until we got to Scotland where we just gave up being specific and played any Scottish artists we thought of.

As explained in previous videos, this trip was primarily to raise money for charity. If you have any spare cash, the campaign is still open. I'll give final totals in the final part of the video series.

Thank you so much to everyone who's donated so far!
